My wife has celiac disease and we are always looking for a restaurant where the food is good and we can trust that the food won't make her ill. We dropped in here the first night is our vacation and were pleased that the server was pleasant and knew her stuff. She knew that the soy sauce was gluten free.... More

Popped in this restaurant for lunch. we were seated right away but it took almost 15 minutes till the server even came to take our drink order. The restaurant is very cold inside. We had a panang thai curry (chicken) and a curry fried rice. The panning curry that I had had a lot of fish sauce. My husband asked... More

What a treat! This food was wonderful The menu was varied and the prices were reasonable. We managed to find something for everyone! We had fried calamari, stir fried veggies with shrimp, teriyaki chicken, and a curry dish. Our drinks included sodas, a glass of wine, and pineapple juice. Quiet with great service and wonderful food. I highly recommend it!

We had a delicious lunch just before they were closing before the dinner rush. The curry was very delicious. Everyone in my picky family enjoyed their meal. There were many menu options.

I came across this place online and read the menu, which caught my attention. I went there for lunch and got the special of pad thai and spring rolls. Everything was very very good! It was very fresh and came out hot. The lunch special was $14 which was a good deal for how much food I got and the... More

Restaurant was empty at 7pm. Staff were helpful and polite. Starters arrived within 60 seconds and main course about 90 seconds after that. It's very hard to describe how bad the food is. It is nothing at all like Thai food and was absolutely terrible. Clearly had come straight from the microwave with way too much chilli powder thrown in.... More

This is great food amongst otherwise pricey competitors. Spring rolls, chicken pad thai, rice noodle salad w/chicken, and tom yum gai were especially good. "Mild" was spicey enough! Lots of spring rolls in the appetizer - let 'em soak up the sauce! Friendly service & nice wine/beer selection.

We stopped in for lunch and the server recommended the clams. So glad we tried them - they were divine. Honestly one of the best broths I have ever tasted and the portion was large enough for sharing. Curry dish was mild but had great flavour. Service was excellent.

With a group of six we ordered quite a number and variety of dishes and we're pleased with every one. The pineapple fried rice, the salad rolls and the pad thai were my personal favorites. Now I'm hungry again!
